Call For Papers

The situation regarding the CoVid-19 pandemic is creating a significant amount of uncertainty about the coming months. It is hard to predict what the situation will be in June. Thus, we have taken a decision to defer the conference to September 07-12, 2020.
Please, keep in mind that Crete in September is much better than in June!
If the cunning CoVid-19 still won’t let us hold the conference in September – we will do it on-line. We prepare an interesting program and won’t back down!

Join us in Heraklion, Greece for Young Scientists Conference in Computational Science 2020 (YSC2020), 07-12 September
University of Crete, Greece, ITMO University and Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia supported by Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), Greece, National Center for Cognitive Research, and Center for Big Data Analysis, Russia, announce 2020 International Young Scientists Conference and Intensive Training School for Big Data and Simulation for young researchers and professionals in computational science to take place at Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), Heraklion, Greece.

***YSC2020 at a glance

Simulation and systems thinking is one way to explain the complex world in which we live. By collecting big data and building computer models, scientists can make predictions or even preventions on critical situations. The Conference aims to strengthen the ties between young scientists in different countries, thus promoting future collaboration in the framework of Computational Science and major application aspects of big data, high performance computing, computer modeling and simulation to tackle a wide range of issues in science, industry and business.

Additionally, the Conference includes the Intensive Training School on Big Data, which aims to train participants by means of best practices in data operations, analytics and building of models.

YSC-2020 invites original contributions on all topics related to High Performance Computing and Simulation, including, but not limited to:
• Modeling and Simulation of Complex Systems
• Big Data and Data-intensive Applications
• Machine Learning and Cognitive Information Technologies
• Problem Solving Environments
• Parallel and Distributed Computing Architectures and Systems
• Visualization, VR & AR in Computational Science
• High Performance Data Analytics and Convergence with HPC

Submit your paper now to participate in this international, interdisciplinary and intercultural event.

***Key conference events
• Break-out sessions to present and discuss the scientific papers of the conference participants
• Guest lectures of the leading scientists
• Intensive training school

*** Intensive training school

The aim of the intensive training school is to give participants practical skills in working with data and building data-driven models using machine learning, as well as introduce modern tools in this area.

1) How to store and process big distributed data effectively and correctly?
2) How to build, learn and validate data-driven models quickly?
3) How to detect patterns and anomalies in real-world data?

***Requirements for participation

Students of Bachelor, Master and Doctoral programs, young researchers and young experts of the leading academic institutions and industrial organizations are invited to take part in the conference. Selection will be based on the results of the peer-review process.

***Important dates

• Motivation Letter submission deadline: May, 15, 2020
• FULL PAPER submission deadline: May 15, 2020
• Notification of FULL PAPER submission acceptance: July, 01, 2020
